I agree with HS Joe, keep the P/G. All he's looking for is extra power and the 327 will deliver this well.
Kyle can change to a TH350 at a later time, or this time, but its extra work for him. As Joe stated, Kyle gets a TH350 with a 6-inch extension housing, a torque convertor to match the TH350, flex plate, change linkage, and he's done. Basicly, still alot of work and planning.
The only thing Kyle will need to find to complete the changeover from I6 to 327 V8 is throttle linkage, he can change to '69 cable, and the kickdown rod between the bellhousing linkage and the carb bracket. The rest is fall in-place. New radiator hoses and heater hoses. Maybe accessory brackets for AC compressor, alternator, and power steering pump, if equipped. He can use the same radiator, but, will need a V8 fan shroud and new V-belt. And V8 chassis mounts to bolt the V8 onto the existing subframe.
Go for it, Kyle!! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
